8′ Radius Brake


This sheet metal radius brake is the perfect solution for forming radius bends in mild steel and aluminum. Stress and cracking of material is minimized due to the unique design of the apron, which swings outside the radius and rolls across the material.

Heavy duty plate construction, quick tooling change over, and convenient radius roll storage on the machine make this brake durable and easy to use. Especially useful in race car fabrication, automotive and aircraft restoration, sign manufacturing and custom cabinet and custom sheet metal, this brake is an excellent addition to any fabrication shop.

This 8' radius brake is a unique design that bends sheet metal to a uniform radius. The machine can handle up to 18 ga mild steel material and includes 5 sizes of radius tubes. Radius tube sizes include 1″ (limited to less degrees of bend than larger tubes), 2″, 2-1/2″, 3″, and 4″. The finished radius of your part will vary depending on material type, thickness, and the setup of the machine. Powdercoated finish for extra durability. Made in the USA.
